I was daydreaming just now as I was in the basement planning my new toilet supply line, how wonderful it would be if one day, perhaps a long time from now, Terry hosted a forum meet at his house in Washington State, perhaps with a barbeque.
We could come from all over the country and meet for the very first time!
I could fly in from DC, Florida Orange could make the short drive from Florida, Scuba Dave could take his private jet and we could all laugh over a beer. Perhaps nhmaster and Redwood could treat us to a seminar or two.
I wonder if it will ever happen? And would we all come home alive?

I would love to go to seattle,
but I would have to drag along my wife and kids with me, so it probably wont happen...
if it were to happen, it would have to be a
"plumbing seminar" hosted by Terry Love where all the great
plumbing minds of the 21st century meet for a
round table discussion....on urgent topics like....FVIR water heater repairs
Toto toilets vs Gerber......new drain cleaning equipment......
things like that thar " high level " kind of stuff.......
that way the trip would be tax deductable...
as a business expence.. then I could take a drive down to
San Franscisco on the 101... very beautiful trip.
you dont mind me stiffing the government
do you Ian???

god created all men,
but sam colt made all men equal
Not at all Mark, since this would be for the common good. But get a wife/babysitter!
I hope Terry would be flipping the burgers.
Am I included in those "greatest plumbing minds of the 21st century"?
I'd like a separate session on "Dealing with serious code violations by adjusting the flapper chain".

Semi-professional plumbing designer
Enjoying life in SW Florida
I dunno...I may be having the jet detailed that weekend
DIY Handyman (not 4 hire)
I have enough to do to my own house
I'm a few hours north of Terry, I'll bring the beer!
Sure, maybe next Summer to celebrate.
I should be about done by then and back on a regular schedule.
Here I am looking at my CAT scan.
Liver good, Lungs good, bones good.
I need a little work on the colon though.
Looks like I will be cutting back on red meat.
Seattle's a good place to be in the Summer.
Terry you look great, and blue is definitely your color,
hoping is all well for you.
What a thing to do on a "Monday"
Hey Terry, Glad to hear the CAT Scan had good news.
I was just thinking with you being under the weather a bit we should make it easy for you and have the first hook up at Ian's place.
That way you can just pop into town for a quick visit and bail...
